I am having a lot of fun with Gwen.
Team Gwen FTW!!!
I thought I’d share my build and experiences with her.
Start with wp blade+swift shooter.
Rush TB then Spellsword.
Finish SSw then get a BP.
You have high burst from TB and piercing
Energy to spam your skills and high damage and CD from SSw
Attack speed and scalable damage from Breaking Point. I often have 14+stacks mid fight while not dying.
These 3 items are your core.
You get slumbering husk vs bursts to survive a dive on you.
I add a TM lategame for extra damage.
Your skills and this build synergize extremely well.
You have 40%bonus wp damage every few seconds this is a great source of reliable damage.
Other contributors reccomend tb Ssw BP and then SB. All 4 items work with your perk, which apparently cannot crit so it needs raw damage. @mq003at recommend this he is a vainglorious player.
A conic burst of Aoe damage that reveals hidden enemies and can be used for poking together with your perk+TB. Combine A+basic attack to melt someones face off or finish a low hp target.
When you hit multiple targets with your A you get a lot of BP stacks lategame. You also have a scalable slow up to 65%.
Skedaddle is your get out of jail free card. Stuns and CC mean jackshit to you and you get a speed boost when activating it. an out of combat speed boost that allows you to gank other lanes more easily or escape scary situations. Chaining A slow with Skedaddle speedboost makes chasing enemies extremely easy. Especially when you also have your Ult available.
The ultimate skill, a card/firecracker with extremely long range. It has sick damage and will stun the target it hits. This is a long range skillshot that can be dodged but when it hits it is a game changer.
My advise for the ult is to use it when a melee is charging you or an ally head on so you can both stop the enemy attack/skill and go from hunted to hunter.
When an enemy decides to run away from you they usually run in a straight line to distance themselves from you. This gives you an excellent shot at hitting them with your Ult outside of attack range. Coming closer and then based on the distance left use Skedaddle to come into range or your A to slow them down or vice versa.
I finish with journey boots.
This is how I play WP Gwen and I am becoming more and more proficient with her. I escape 3 man dives on me and can attack a group of enemies head on while they have a hard time locking me down. Meanwhile I am stacking BP stacks and my next empowered hit with TB+my perk will hit like a truck.
Ultra lategame you can sell tb for another TM.
5/5 wins on the Rise so far average stats are 9/3/9.
CP gwen is all about poking too but I won’t write a guide on her now because she is weaker than WP atm.
Build would be AS SF BM De/SG/FB with SH and JB
But I don’t play her atm
